How much does a personal licence cost?
This is a question we are often asked here at Alcohol Licence! If you are applying through a licensing company, the average cost for a full personal licence application, including an accredited qualification, seems to be around £300-£350. A solicitor’s fees will be far higher. In this article, we’ll break down the costs associated with a personal licence application:
To apply for a personal licence, you will need to pass an accredited licensing qualification- this a legal requirement under the Licensing Act 2003. The forty minute test must be invigilated at a registered test centre, adding a significant cost. How you learn largely determines the remaining costs- you can read up using a text book, register for an e-learning package or attend an instructor led course. As this is a challenging test based on a lengthy act of law, we strongly recommend register onto an accredited course.
CRB check and photograph verification:
A Criminal Record Check, basic disclosure, must be submitted with a personal licence application. The cost of a basic disclosure check is £25. A passport sized photo must also be verified by a professional.
An application fee of £37 is payable to the licensing authority to which the application is sent.
